Boy, 7, pulled from apparent kidnapper
A man allegedly tried to abduct a seven-year-old boy outside a 7-Eleven store in Fairfax City Wednesday morning, but the boy's mother and a bystander wrested the boy away and officers quickly made an arrest, Fairfax City police said Thursday.
The incident happened outside the 7-Eleven store at 10911 Main Street, near the intersection of routes 29 and 50 in the Kamp Washington area.
Police said the boy was standing beside his family's vehicle when a man grabbed his hand and tried to lead him away.
The boy's mother and a bystander spotted this, pulled the boy away from the suspect and put him in the family car. The boy was not hurt.
Officers spotted the suspect in the 7-Eleven parking lot when they arrived, police said.
Charles Robert Barbour, 47, of the 900 block of Wolfe Street in Alexandria City, was arrested and charged with abduction. He is being held without bond in the Fairfax County jail.
